I awoke yesterday and the energies around me felt quite changed. It felt calmer, invigorated, purposeful, exciting, and that sense of change and adventure is with me still. Usually I am well aware of the different phases of the moon, but this time I had forgotten or overlooked the fact that it was the new moon the night before. When I was reminded of this it all made sense.
The world of nature seems to be reflecting this new cycle also. New birds have appeared in the garden, an otter visited one of the ponds on Monday night, the new moon, the frogs began to spawn (very late, as if they had been waiting), bees have emerged from hibernation and the whole place is buzzing with noise and activity. It feels joyful, and it is infectious. I would love it if you were feeling it too.
